The H.W. Harkness Elementary School community is rallying for fitness.

The school’s Parent Resource Room has teamed up with Father’s and Families to encourage parents, staff and students to walk around the school every Monday and Tuesday.

The activity is healthy and gives students a small break so they are focused and ready to learn.

The Health and Fitness Club focuses on walking, healthy eating and exercise. Father’s and Families allowed the site to borrow pedometers to track daily steps.

The club meets every Monday as a group to log in steps from the previous week.This is a 22-week program and the school is currently on week number 5.
